Rebecca Black – the Next Justin Bieber

Taken nearly two years ago, this is one of my favorite photos of
Kaden, Taylor, and Zac
As any ten (almost eleven) year-old will tell you, singing sensation Rebecca Black is THE hottest singing sensation since Justin Bieber.

Hold on a second. I have to be honest. I had no clue who Justin Bieber was until Taylor, one of my granddaughters, told me a couple of years ago that she was in love with Justin Bieber. In redeeming myself I must also tell you that being the loving grandmother I am and knowing that I could find something Justin Bieber-related for an upcoming birthday or Christmas present, I searched and searched for Justin Beever or Justin Beaver and could find nothing.

Note to grandmas everywhere – spelling is really important. You can only imagine how grateful I was that Rebecca Black spelled her name exactly the way I thought it should be spelled.

Rebecca Black's song, Friday, a catchy little tune with a cute video accompanying it, went viral after her mother paid $4,000 to Ark Music Factory, who produced Friday and then released the video on YouTube. As of this writing, over 163 million viewers have seen Rebecca Black's Friday YouTube video.

According to wikipedia, Black will be 14 years old on June 21, 2011. I'm nearing 60 and the only thing viral about me is what I catch from my grandchildren. I'm still waiting to become popular. But that's another blog.

I knew none of this earth-shattering Rebecca Black information yesterday, but now, thanks to my granddaughter who knows such things, I am now a knowledgeable grandma.

Anyway, back to the point of this blog. During dinner last night, Taylor (who will be 11 next week), in relaying just how sensational Rebecca Black is, told me and her two younger brothers, Kaden, 6, and Zac, 3, "People are saying that Rebecca Black is the next Justin Bieber."

Kaden's eyes widened in amazement.  "So Justin Bieber isn't going to be Justin Bieber anymore?"

I love the way 6-year-olds think.

  1. LOL. You always give me a giggle, Theresa :) ..."so Justin Bieber's not going to be..." ;)

    And today I've given you an award on my blog :) Sweet!!!


  2. I thought the Rebecca Black video was kind of sweet and innocent compared to a lot of similar sounding stuff by more famous artists. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter was singing it last time I was with her.
